Get fitted by a good sports store. All our feet and needs are different. Once you find the ones that work great for you, there is a good chance you can buy them at lower prices over the years from different sources. They don't usually make big changes on that brand and model of shoe for years. Also, you can usually buy the older models for a couple years at heavy discounts.

Hi Trisha,

I agree with Jess. Many running specialty stores carry other shoes besides runners, so I would recommend you start there.

What works for one person won't work for another... your best bet is to go to the store and get fitted. TRy different shoes and see what fits your foot and your budget. There are as many answers about shoes as there are feet!

I have a pair of Ryka cross trainers I really like; however, they might or might not work for you.

Go to a running store and get fitted. They should fit cross trainers, or at least give a recommendation for where to go
